The Stann Givens Family Law American Inn of Court

The Stann Givens Family Law Inn of Tampa was formed in 1995.  Originally known as the Family Law Inn of Court of Tampa, the Inn overwhelmingly voted to rename the Inn after Stann Givens, a founding member of the Inn and the Inn’s executive director from 1995-2014.   The Stann Givens Family Law Inn of Tampa is recognized as a Platinum Inn, initially achieving their Platinum level status in 2011.  While the members of the Stann Givens Family Law Inn are dedicated to the practice of family law they are also a creative and talented group of  competitors.  They have more spirit than any other Inn in Tampa. The Stann Givens Family Law Inn of Tampa is likely to take the gold this year as they crush their competition at the 2018 Justice Games.
